business. a big buzz about a gall up poll showing that president obama would be defeated by a generic republican by 8 points and leads any of the spectacular candidates that he is paired against. what does this mean? franklyy absolutely nothing. a poll in this point in time is where they are today and not in 15 months. voters will automatically vote democrat and some automatically vote republican. the election is going to be decided by independent voters in the middle, and they are a long way from making up their mines on the next election. they are struggling whether or not they are having a next paycheck. while i enjoy a good game of politics as much as the next guy, there is a time to campaign and then there is a time to govern. president and members of congress from both parties have had their fun politicing the debt ceiling and now time to govern and resolve it. i don't think the world will face armageddon over failure to set the debt limit. there would be affects. you wouldn't be able to visit the national parks and coon get a passport and airport lines for tsa could take hours
home 63 big spending democrats. americans said we do not want more spending, we want dramatic cuts in size and scope and focus of washington d.c. and promised cuts, minuscule when we have a deficit in the trillions of dollars in year and 253 million dollars. it's just really, it's weak tea. >> sorry to jump in. but it really is obama who is the person who is holding it up at this point. and the congressional republicans that are present on this issue for in the caving in and giving a deal up already to this point. so, i think saying that they're ignoring us isn't, isn't true because they really are out there, fighting for the best deal possible. >> were you comfortable with 253 million dollars of cuts this year when they promised 100 billion. >> 253 million dollar cuts, in exchange for that one continuing resolution. as long as they get to the 100 billion over the course of the entire year, i would support what they're doing and they knew that the debt ceiling debate was still going to go on and more cuts from here and working to do just that and i think they deserve credit. >> do
the unfolding of the debt crisis deal. you know, the big difference between campaigning and governing is simple. in a campaign it is your message and platform 100 percent. you frame the entire message and drive the points that you think are important and ignore the things you don't about and understand. the result of the campaign you are elected, you have to shift gear to governing mode. that is like killing a deer in the wood and cooking it in the kitchen. tools that you use to kill the deer are . different than the ones you cook and serve it with. folks have campaigned but can't trannsition from the woods or kitchen n a campaign there is no recognition that the other candidates might have ideas that are better or at least more palatable than your own. it is political suicide to open a campaign debate by saying my opponent has a better idea on improving schools than i do. no, candidates have an answer and a plan to everything. if you don't, you still do. being a candidate is a practice scrimmage. governorship is where everyone is trying to win and no one wants to lose. no one holds the office
in the big courtroom on the 23rd floor of the orange county courthouse behind me. as both the prosecution and defense in the casey anthony capital murder death penalty trial made their last emotional appeals to the jury. by day's end the jurors had seen everything. from the prosecution's powerful presentation of the largely circumstantial case of the accused child killer is the defense equivalent of where is the beef? where is the evidence to prove beyond and to the exclusion of all reasonable doubt that caseyen thon knee indeed suffocated her precious caylee so mom would be free to party. there were fireworks, there was finger pointing and there were hard called facts. we begin our 2 hour report from jeff ashton's closing remarks. >> thank you for t time you have given us in this case. we have taken a-away from your families and lives for the last six week all of us appreciate the sacrifice you have made. i am happy to say we came in on the low end of our estimate. we said 6-8 and we came in on 6. our job here is virtually done and your work is about to start. >> from the beginning the p
, but they are big on talent. back by popular demand, the sleepy band banjo boys. ladies and gentlemen, governor mike huckabee. >> thank you. thank you very much. great audience. welcome to huckabee from the fox news studios in new york city. some nut group called freedom from religion has their antenna up because the governor of texas is calling for a day of prayer. now, even though taxpayers aren't paying for any of it, this group is suing to stop it. look, it is one thing to express some cynicism as to whether the timing for a highly publicized prayer event is a precursor to an announcement the governor wants to run for president, but i cannot understand why people who don't even believe in god and hate religion are so afraid of it. if they really think prayer is a worth less and meaning less exercise in futility, then wouldn't they want believers praying more? it would keep them busy doing something harmless instead of going out to the streets scream ling for pedestrians to repent. let's say i plan on messing them up. i will pray for them. they need the prayers, and i need the practice. another s

pension promises in the 1990s, big promises that they can't pay for, most of those politicians are gone now and the current politicians are stuck with the problems. it is a dysfunctional system because you make promises now that have to be paid for 10, 20 years in advance. >> what is going happen. some cases they are saying new employees we are going to pay you less but in order to stiff the older employees this happened to you they have to declare bankruptcy and get reorganized bay judge who says okay, you can -- doesn't seem fair that your city has a golf course they are losing money on. they didn't get rid of that. >> should sell that. >> they should sell that. >> and now finally paying a third of what they promise. >> exactly. >> are you happy with that? >> no, i'm not. not at all. >> and part of the problem is what you have to do is do this in a way that fixes the system now by reduces the costs now for those people who are currently work something that you can continue to pay your retirees otherwise you still have the situation where you say we will save the system for the people
migraine headaches and takes medication for them. boy, that is a big story. that is nonsense that one has to endure running for president. it fries my bacon that the worse criticism of michelle bachmann gets headaches. good grief the presidency is a headache. you can see she has unfailing energy and hardly seems incapacitated . i get so tired of the saint was journalism demanding to see the medical records of a female presidential candidate because i staffer who couldn't keep up with them. that is losing one headache and only people i have less use for with someone who does that to a former boss is the gum shoe reporter who usually smells a story. what he usually smells is his own self. brian left on the stage to confront and demand that she answer his questions and got upset when the staffers treated him like the incontract jerk he can be. being on the receiving end of his brand of reporting, i realized that he is less the cause of a headache for michelle bachmann and more a pain in the other end of one's anatomy. reporters have a right to ask questions but not demand answers to question
big things from you. i was in awe at first. cbut our relationship grew from there. >> derek jeter played with the yankees for his entire career. he learned the level of steinbrenner's expectation. >> i was in my rookie year and on third base and there was one out and a line drive that was caught. we won the game . after the game i was in the clubhouse and he walked over to me. he said don't ever get doubled off at third again. that was not the words, but that was the point. i was surprised because one, we won the game. but shows you how much he expected excellence. >> there is a mental toughness and discipline. i don't want them to go be treated as heroes if they weren't. >> he had high expectations for everyone that worked for him. >> he expected excellence. anyone at the stadium, security guard, and vendors, you name it, anyone that was around, he wanted you to perform high. >> and he ruled with dedication to the tale . had no long hair rule. >> i have nothing against long hair. >> once it took him an hour to get out of the parking lot and on to the highway. few days later he wa
